I don’t know who this phantom saxophone player is, but I do know that we already have one very important thing in common — our undying love of adult contemporary sax solos. Mystery George Michael saxophone player, call me. [YouTube] … READ MORE »

Kick ass! A nine-year-old and a 10-year-old who call themselves Watoto From The Nile wrote and performed a hip-hop song about rapper Lil Wayne’s derogatory and sexist lyrics. How much do you love these little girls? Amelia, when you retire in 2031 and replace yourself with the five-year-old girl who won’t marry until… READ MORE »

Teeny-bopper, mmm-boppers, Hanson are back with a new song. The video for “Give a Little” from their latest album Shout it Out is still jump-up-and-down while you chew your bubble gum fun, but with a slightly more adult feel. Like maybe you’re chewing Orbitz instead of Bubble Yum. I still can’t believe they… READ MORE »

If you were a music fan in the ’90s then you listened to Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins until your cassette tape unraveled or your CD was too scratched to play again. Usually while lamenting an unrequited crush (or maybe that was just me). Ever wonder what happened to those little girls on the… READ MORE »

Sitting in Starbucks awhile ago, Jack Johnson’s cute little ditty “Banana Pancakes” came over the sound system. “Pretend like it’s the weekend now,” I sang to myself, thinking, This song is significant. Why is this song significant? Then I remembered: my friend Tania picked “Banana Pancakes” as her first dance song when she married her… READ MORE »

This Ani Di Franco/Margaret Cho animated music video for “Captain Cameltoe,” off Cho’s new album Cho Dependent, is something you’ll appreciate fully the more stoned you get. (JK! Don’t do drugs, kids!) But I can’t say my 16-year-old self isn’t thrilled two of her real-life superheroes finally teamed up as Captain Cameltoe and Righteous… READ MORE »

Well lookey what we have here. A young Ricky Gervais who clearly fancies himself a David Bowie disciple. Ricky was the front man of British new wave band, Seona Dancing. Even though this song hit number 70 on the UK charts, I’m glad he decided to explore his comedic side instead of staying… READ MORE »

When I was a young teen, Britney Spears trotted onto the scene in her braids, schoolgirl skirt and red lipstick, posing for Rolling Stone while sucking lollipops and hugging stuffed animals. At the time, her look was described as “kinderwhore.” Over a decade later, Britney’s most barely-legal moments look tame in comparison to the pop… READ MORE »

Uh, my celebrity soul mate, Stevie Nicks, is back. Her new album, In Your Dreams, is out in May. This single off the album, “Secret Love,” is a song she’s been working on since the ’70s. No wonder it sounds so Stevie-vintage-wonderful. I really want her to start wearing capes and feathers again. READ MORE »

Put another record on: It turns out that listening to music is just about as good as sex when it comes to making people happy. A new study from Canadian researchers at McGill University in Montreal found that the dopamine released while having sex is the same you get when listening to music. Researchers vetted… READ MORE »

This weekend I saw “Blue Valentine” for the second time — and there probably will be a third viewing, so just deal! — and I was struck, again, by a moment in the movie when Ryan Gosling’s character, Dean, picks out a song for he and Cindy, played by Michelle Williams. “I got us… READ MORE »

Rock band Muse is aiming to be the first band to perform a live gig in space.

Anna Nicole Smith died ignobly, but perhaps an opera at the Royal Opera House in London will redeem her. Nah, probably not. “Anna Nicole,” which is not so much an ode to the woman born Vickie Lynn Hogan but a musical rendering of her tragic life, will play February 17 to March 4. The buxom… READ MORE »

Here’s one year-end list we’d never want to be on. The Boston Public Health Commission ranked the top 10 worst relationship songs released this year; songs were ranked by the unhealthy messages they sent listeners about relationships and violence against women. At the top of the list? Usher, whose tracks “Lil Freak” and “Hot Tottie” READ MORE »

Meet DJ Mamy Rock, the 69-year-old granny who knows her way around a turntable.

God, I love Pink’s music videos. “Raise Your Glass” is catchy as hell and how awesome is it that she’s singing at a gay wedding?

Simon Le Bon, the lead singer of Duran Duran, produced some of my favorite ’80s music of all time — “Rio,” “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “Girls on Film,” “Reflex,” “New Moon on Monday,” to name just a few. And he was so hot back in the day. Major crush. Happy birthday, dude! … READ MORE »
